The month of April is not only significant because of Wrestlemania, but it is also shaping up to be the biggest and most successful month for WWE superstars in Hollywood. While The Rock stars in Rampage, Cena is coming out with what looks to be his most critically acclaimed movie, Blockers. And Dave Batista is starring in arguably the biggest movie-going experience in history – Avengers: Infinity War.
“I knew that if I made it in Hollywood, outside of the WWE. Then that meant one important thing. That I just opened the door for the WWE, helped open the door for the entire WWE locker room”. – The Rock, WWE Raw, February 2011.
While everyone knew the significance of The Rock’s success in Hollywood, and they certainly knew that he helped open the doors for other WWE superstars to follow in his footsteps. For the longest time, wrestling fans were unable to point out any other Hollywood success story other than that of ‘The Great One’. But now, we are witnessing a new era in Hollywood, one that The Rock helped create.
